I am the only beneficiary of my late father’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Ardleigh Green. The Ardleigh Green property was put into my name in January. I now wish to sell up.

Your conveyancer must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook Part 2 provisions for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.
